A male possible Vizsla , now named Chester, was found in Sunnyside Houston by a volunteer of South Side Street Dogs yesterday. He had heinous wounds including several cuts, holes, a broken tail, and a traumatic head injury deep into the bone which appears to have been made by the back of a hammer. Chester was rushed for emergency treatment at Gulfgate Animal Hospital where he is starting to recover. He is approximately one year old and is an emaciated forty-five pounds.
South Side Street Dogs stated, “This poor dog was spotted and picked up by our feeders this evening in Sunnyside, Houston, Texas with a traumatic head injury that appears to be from being struck with a sharp heavy object, such as the back end of a hammer. This poor boy has lacerations and holes all over his body (knife wounds?), he is extremely emaciated, and his tail is broken in two places so badly that it is folded under his body. His paws are raw and one of them is bleeding and swollen. There isn’t an area of his poor body that isn’t injured. He has the sweetest yet saddest eyes we have ever seen in a dog. He has no idea why he has been treated so badly.
Chester (his new name) is at the emergency vet right now getting urgent care and surgery. We desperately need your help! Please donate to Chester via PayPal at email@example.com. If you do not have PayPal, you can call in donations into Gulfgate Animal Hospital at (713) 643-5723 [Monday – Friday 8am-6pm].
Chester is such a sweet little boy who has gone through too much pain and suffering…more than most of us would care to imagine. Please help him get the immediate help he needs to give him the second chance he so greatly deserves.”
Chester possibly had a good home at one time because he is neutered and is familiar with car rides and squeeky toys. If anyone recognizes him please contact South Side Street dogs at firstname.lastname@example.org or on their facebook page here.
